Drum Your Heart Out

I have been inspired this week.

I took my family out to a pizzeria and we sat down in the back room away from the main dining room. This room is normally reserved for sporting events (as evidenced by their large T.V.s) but since we are out of season, so to speak, it was just background noise. Until this commercial came on:

I love seeing a composer’s talents utilized in such a creative fashion. You can actually hear the song they intended through the water. So this inspired me to write some tutorials on how one could do this in their own home. If you have some talent and experience in music and rhythm, this will be easy for you. However, if you don’t have any, don’t worry. I have a fool proof way anyone could come up with something like this.

Here is another talented example:

So how do you get started? Well, find some things around the house, garage, or closet and see what you can find that could become a percussion instrument. In the following weeks, I will show you how to use them.

  1. Oh – I love, love, love this – and I haven’t even been able to see the videos yet. I have a six-year old who lives for the drums. I can’t wait to show him. Thanks for posting this!

  2. We watched this, and then went on to see several YouTube videos of STOMP. I saw them live over ten years ago. Now, there is a constant pounding in my house. There is always a constant pounding in my house, it’s just that now it sounds vaguely musical!
